Wherever we travel, we always try to immerse ourselves in the local culture. Traditions, ways of life, food, drink, dancing…you name it, we’ll try it.
For those of you unfamiliar with international men’s swimwear, sungas are the Brazilian equivalent of speedos….but with slightly more material around the hips.
Walking along Ipanema Beach, it soon became clear that Brazilian men do not wear swimming shorts. In fact we would estimate that 99% of men wear sungas.
As such, we felt out of place. we felt we weren’t immersing myself. we needed to find out what all the hype about sungas was.
In the end, we are now part of their culture. Sometimes you need to leave with a piece of culture from a particular country 😉
